    Cannes

    With the 63rd edition of Cannes Film Festival ready to start in just a couple of days, it’s time to make your last-minute preparations and decide what exactly what you want out of this trip. As the eccentric Tim Burton will preside this year’s jury, film buffs all over the world are expecting for an explosive edition.

    But as devoted one is to movies, it would be a pity to travel to this lovely Mediterranean town and not get to taste its warm sun and laid-back atmosphere. For those lonely afternoons when you feel like giving a rest to your movie-infused eyes and brain or just wandering off, we give you five of Cannes most popular attractions:

    La Croisette

    With its posh cafes, exclusive boutiques and glitzy look, La Croisette (officially, ‘Promenade de la Croisette) represents the core of Cannes’ social life. During the 10 days of festival, La Croisette is invaded by an eclectic crowd. Part of La Croisette’s fame comes from the fact that this is the street where one can find the Palais des Festivals et de Congres, whose main purpose, form the very beginning, was to host the famous festival.

    Le Souquet

    Just as La Croisette represents the modern, lively part of Cannes, Le Souquet, Cannes’ historic district, invites you to a whole new experience: right behind Cannes’ coquette little port and picturesque waterfront, you will discover a labyrinthine network of narrow steers. Le Souquet is the ideal place to enjoy an inexpensive coffee and go uphill in order to enjoy the best known town panorama.

    Marche Forville

    If you want to get a taste of the real Cannes (or the everyday Cannes), then the best thing to do is get up early and head for Marche Forville, the town’s biggest farmers market. From colorful flower bouquets to fresh seafood and an enticing selection of local diary products, Marche Forville is guaranteed to awaken your five senses. Bargain hunters can as well come here every Monday, when Marche Forville becomes a huge flea market, known by the locals as Marche Brocante.

    Île Ste.-Marguerite

    Just 700 meters at sea from Cannes, one can visit the small archipelago of Iles de Lerins, among which Ille Sainte-Marquerite is the biggest and the richest in touristic attractions. The isle is home to a nicely preserved Vauban fortress (Le Fort Royal de l’Ile Sainte-Marguerite) which has now been transformed into an oceanographic museum.


    Saint Tropez

    Whether you want to stay one day away from movies or you liked Cannes so much that you want to extend your stying, a day trip to the neighboring St. Tropes is definitely worth the effort. Although much of St. Tropez’s fame is connected to its wealthy (or simply famous) seasonal residents, the town offers some of the nicest beaches and most luxurious restaurants on the French Riviera.
